|“EVENING AT ASPEN”|
19.5 x 30”
A beautiful and delicate work, this is the result
of the artist’s first trip to Aspen, Colorado. “ The meadow
floor,” he stated, “seems to be covered with pieces of eight!
It is simply beautiful.” So is this work. The deer are wonderfully
painted with graceful limbs and postures, the aspen trees are carefully
designed to accentuate the animals and a little cabin is evident in the
background, with a bit of smoke lazily curling skyward. The moon shines
brightly amidst a flawless sky above the looming snow-capped peaks. It
is a beautiful, crisp eve, the air smells wonderful, and the viewer is
given an excellent rendering of how it feels to be in the Rocky Mountains
of picturesque Colorado.
